Barring any setbacks, the series is expected to premiere before winter 2019.
The 10-episode hourlong multi-city competition series, which had been in development at Netflix for over a year, is set to premiere in fall 2019. Auditions will begin this fall across the country, including the judges’ hometowns of Atlanta, Chicago, and New York. In each audition city, established rappers who hail from that city will serve as guest judges. (Deadline)
A few days ago, Cardi B made headlines after partnering up with sports apparel giant Reebok.
The same week, Reebok’s president came forward and confirmed the company’s decision to work with the “Bodak Yellow” superstar.
“For us, she really is emblematic of what our brand has done well over the years and that is to be bold, provocative and uninhibited,” Matthew O’Toole, Reebok’s president, told WWD. “If we look at some of the things we’ve done with Allen Iverson or being the first to sign musicians, or more recently with Kerby [Jean-Raymond] of Pyer Moss, when we are at our best we are with people who are comfortable living out loud and Cardi fits that.” (Just Jared)
